Scholastic Enhancement Program, or
SEE, is a 2 week summer program for incoming, underrepresented
soon to be college freshmen (known as
SEE Scholars) that takes place on the
campus of Truman State University.
SEE Scholars accomplish many things that
will benefit their college career. During the 2 week session, Scholars
will take a 1-credit hour course that counts towards their Truman degree.
During the fall semester,
SEE Scholars will be enrolled in a
private Writing As Critical Thinking 3-credit hour course (which is required
of all Truman students), INDV 115: Strategies for Success 1-credit hour
course (which consists of a series of workshops and activities), College
Algebra (depending on their math proficiency), and one major related course.
SEE Scholars will also have a common hour built into their
schedule (3 times per week) for meetings, academic advising, and other
supplemental activities. In addition to the academic component,
scholars are introduced to University life, resources, and support systems
in ways that will assist them in navigating the University system.
During the 2 week summer session, Scholars will have twenty-four hour
support and guidance from
SEE Student Program Counselors and
Coordinators in an effort to help them in shaping their university
